From the start of Adventure Freaks, our goal was to give back to the community. After many ideas of ways we could, we finally landed on the National Forest Foundation. The mission of this organization is to help replace some of the trees damaged due to wildfire, disease, insects, etc. in National Parks all across the United States.
For every dollar donated to this organization, the National Forest Foundation plants a tree in a National Park in need of restoration. Pretty simple concept!
Adventure Freaks will be donating 25% of all sales to the National Forest Foundation in hopes to make an impact in our National Parks! This is a mission we want to be apart of!
So why this organization you ask?
In the summer of 2017, a few members of the Adventure Freak team took a trip to Colorado. While there, we went on a white water rafting trip down the Cache La Poudre River which flows through the Roosevelt National Forest. As you might know, this forest was attacked by wildfire in 2012. What started as a lightening strike, ended in over 87,000+ acres burned. It was all I could do to imagine what it might of looked like before the fire. For anyone that has ever seen the aftermath of a wildfire, knows how it can make you feel. All I could think about was how much it would take to restore all of this land, both physically and financially. When I ran across the National Forest Foundation, the cause hit home with me. Although, there are far more acres to restore than money we have to donate, we feel every dollar counts.
